Our Approach To Your Data
We believe very strongly in your right to privacy, and in your right to control your data at all times.
We have consciously taken this approach when developing our Website and our Products. We have deliberately
avoided the use of tracking technologies, and have attempted to minimise as much as possible the data we
We do not sell or give information about our users to any third parties, except when strictly necessary as
detailed below. We consider your data to be a liability, not an asset.
Ideogram Products and how we use and disclose that data. The following definitions will be used throughout
"Software Product" means any software product developed by Ideogram.
"Downloadable Software Product" means any Software Product that can be downloaded
and installed on a machine, licensed under the relevant Licence Agreement.
"Website" means any website that is the property of Ideogram, including but not limited to
everything hosted under the top-level domains cursive-ide.com, and ideogram.co.nz.
"Cursive" means the Downloadable Software Product known as Cursive and the documentation
"Licence Certificate" is evidence provided to you by Ideogram of your purchase of a
Why We Collect Data
We collect data for various reasons, such as:
- To provide you with our software. We collect data that identifies
you as an individual or company, depending on the type of licence, when you purchase our Software Products.
This is required to create the Licence Certificate you need to run our Software Products. We only
collect data which you explicitly fill in to provide to us. You are not required to provide us with any data
to evaluate our software.
- To provide technical support. We may need to ask you for data to process support
requests, especially if it requires accessing data that you have already provided to us.
- As required by law. We may collect, use and disclose your personal data where required by
law, such as in response to a court order, valid subpoena, or other legal process.
- Third Party Service Providers. We use third party service providers as discussed in
Third Party Service Providers.
What We Collect
What we collect depends on the circumstances:
- Purchasing Software Products: When you purchase a Downloadable Software Product, we collect
and store information we require in order to create a Licence Certificate, generally your name or company
contact email address and possibly the name of the reselling company if applicable. We use a third-party
service provider to process your payment. This provider is governed by its own agreement as described
in Third Party Service Providers.
- Using Downloadable Software Products: Previous versions of Cursive periodically sent
anonymous usage data to us, including:
- Your Operating System (OS).
- Versions of our Software Product, the IntelliJ Platform, the OS and the JRE used to run the IDE.
- Which file types you opened while having our Software Product installed (to tell whether Cursive was
being actively used).
This information was anonymous and only associated with a random ID created when Cursive was
installed. We never used this information, and recent Cursive versions no longer send it. Our servers no
longer store the data that is still sent by older versions. Our current Software Products do not
collect, send or store any of your data, except as detailed under Reporting
Reporting errors: When errors are submitted via our Software
Products they may contain
snippets of source code which may contain sensitive or personal data - you will always have the option to
submit the error without this information. Errors submitted in this way generally also include information
such as stack traces, which may reveal information about your project. We do not track your IP address when
submitting this information.
No information from any of these activities is used for any other purpose, or to compile any kind of profile
on our users.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We do not set any cookies on our Website, or use any other analytics or tracking technologies. Our third-party
payment service provider may place cookies during the purchase process, see
Third Party Service Providers for details on their privacy policies.
Children under the age of 16 cannot effectively consent to our use of their data, and thus should not provide
it to us. If we discover that a person under the age of 16 has submitted information directly to us, we will
delete the information from our systems.
